Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really liked the portions of this book that were narrated by the little boy. What an amazingly funny and charismatic character. I did not so much care for the chapters in between his narration in which other characters narrated. It was often hard to follow who was speaking, what they were speaking about, and how it related to the rest of the story. I could have done without those parts but really loved the main character's experiences. Very heartwarming and so sad at times. What a horrible time that was for the US and to hear an account from a character directly affected by 9-11 makes it impossible not to re-live what we all felt watching those events unfold.
